- Community Schools
The continued safety, well-being, and success of our students, teachers, staff, and community has always been our top priority as we navigate the complex and evolving coronavirus crisis. To this end, we are updating our reopening plan to begin the school year in a fully online-learning model for all students which will continue through the last week of September. All students in grades 1-12 will begin on August 18, kindergarten students will begin on August 20.
La seguridad continúa, el bienestar, y el éxito de nuestros estudiantes, maestros, empleados, y la comunidad siempre ha sido nuestra prioridad más importante a manera que enfrentamos la compleja y evolucionante crisis del coronavirus. Con este fin, estamos actualizando nuestro plan de reapertura para comenzar este año escolar en un modelo de instrucción completamente en línea para estudiantes hasta finales de septiembre. Hemos actualizado el calendario para que todos los estudiantes en los grados 1-12 comiencen el 18 de agosto, los estudiantes de jardin de infantes comenzarán el 20 de agosto.
It is clear that the LES staff members are deeply committed experts in the field of education. Their knowledge and professionalism, the care they pour into our students, and the bond they share as co-workers is rare, and something to be treasured. We will continue to focus on building trusting relationships as we work and play together in the years to come. To support our students around a clear vision, we will come together this year to support three main initiatives:
These goals make up our annual Unified Improvement Plan. Rigorous and academic in nature, our goals also clearly support two main components of our mission: creativity and cooperation.
The LES Student and Family Handbook describes a shared vision for our community as well. Intentional School Culture, Parent and Community Involvement, and Learning and Instruction make up that vision, and will drive every decision that I make. We will continue to partner with our community as folks participate and lead in various ways, sharing their passion and expertise with our students.
I'm looking forward to meeting and getting to know each of your families. Do not hesitate to reach out. Upfront, honest and caring communication are first steps towards a successful and lasting partnership.To meet our shared vision and school-wide goals, we know we must work cooperatively, so let's get after it!
Yours in Education,
